LSVA is inclusive to veterans of all eras of service, their families, and civilian supporters. Our mission is to build the veteran community. We believe that our community is strongest when it is united. Please join us and come meet your LSVA community at an event near you soon.
Membership is open to veterans, their family, civilian supporters, active duty, reservists, and national guard.
We're excited to invite you to 10th annual Operation Lone Star Santa on Saturday, December 8. Our volunteers help provide donated toys to the children of veteran families in the Greater Houston area. We also celebrate the season and spirit of giving by sharing a wonderfully catered meal at the Combined Arms center east of downtown.
All of this is possible thanks to your donations and sponsorships, allowing us to serve these veteran families at no cost. See the video slideshows for highlights from the last two years:More details will be forthcoming, including volunteer signups, how to register to receive gifts, and corporate sponsorship information. We look forward to seeing you and continuing this tradition of sharing and friendship!If you are a veteran and would like to sign up to receive toys for your family, please click the following link so we can give your kids the toys they'll like best:

We believe that Texas should be the best place for veterans and their families to live. Our mission is to build the community of veterans by strengthening careers and families.
Veterans have served their country and been part of the best military in history. Help us maintain that camaraderie by connecting veterans and their families to resources, opportunities, and one another.
Your involvement is critical to our success and solving this issue. Thank you again for your help.
Lone Star Veterans Association is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides military veterans with community building activities that strengthen careers and families.
According to the Department of Labor 80% of all jobs are placed through personal networks, but 60% of veterans cite a lack of personal and professional networks when they leave the military as a hurdle to their transition. Building the veteran community means creating professional and personal networks of our successful members to advance their careers, as well as those new to the community to find a career and a family to belong to.
Your support of Lone Star Veterans Association allows us to connect veterans and their families to resources, opportunities and other veterans.Donate
